The food here is very good and we have always had courteous waiters. This is authentic Mexican food for a good price. The atmosphere is casual but comfortable and they bring a complimentary dessert at the end. Come on Wednesday for my favorite, Tres Amigos...More

Absolutely horrible service and rude! From the moment we ordered, plates were thrown on the table, glasses were not refilled, waitress was incredibly rude. At first we thought that maybe she was just having a bad night, so we didn't say anything, but we noticed...More

Always fast, courteous, and consistently good. I eat at the Newberry SC location every Monday for lunch and the Chapin SC location occasionally. Always a good choice.

Love me some El Poblanos! Fast, efficient service, large manu, flavorful food. This is our favorite Mexican restaurant around. We love everything on the menu and have pretty much tried it all. The one bad thing...hard to decide what to eat it’s all so good.

Can be crowded around 6pm but the wait isn't bad. Fast service and big portions. Friendly staff and great Margaritas!

The only problem with El Pob is that it’s ruined all other Mexican food for us. No others compare. Super fast like many other Mexican restaurants. Excellent appetizers and meals. Daily specials are a deal. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.

Hmmm, "Lake Murray Marina Road" location has been closed for some time. They have relocated to the place on route 76 I mentioned. Brand new building. Hard floors and not that permanently damp disgusting carpet they had to... More
